The Man in the High Castle season 4 adds three to cast
The Gifted star Frances Turner has been officially cast as a series regular in the season 4 of Amazon Studios‘ dystopian series The Man In The High Castle, Deadline reports. Clé Bennett (Homeland) and Rich Ting (NCIS: Los Angeles) will also be joining the cast of The Man In The High Castle for recurring roles in season 4.
Turner is set to play Bell Mallory, a girl who has escaped from a Nazi concentration camp into the Japanese Pacific states, where she will meet Bennet’s character Elijah, a militant Black nationalist. Bell and Elijah will become guerilla members of the BCR, a movement dedicated to the liberation of African-Americans. Ting will play the role of Captain Iijima, a driven and ambitious young detective in the Kempeitai and Kido’s close deputy.
Amazon hasn’t announced the release date for season 4; however, production is expected to start later this year right before season 3 premieres.
The Man in the High Castle stars Alexa Davalos (Mob City), Rupert Evans (American Pastoral), Luke Kleintank (Pretty Little Liars), DJ Qualls (Z Nation), Joel De La Fuente (Hemlock Grove), Brennan Brown (Focus), Bella Heathcote (The Neon Demon), and Callum Keith Rennie (Longmire), with Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa (Revenge) and Rufus Sewell (Victoria). The series was developed by Frank Spotnitz (The X-Files), with Ridley Scott (The Martian), David W. Zucker (The Good Wife), Richard Heus (Ugly Betty), Isa Dick Hackett (The Adjustment Bureau), and Daniel Percival (Banished) serving as executive producers for The Man in the High Castle Season 3. Eric Overmyer (Treme, Bosch, The Affair) will serve as showrunner and executive producer for this new season.
Based on Philip K. Dick’s Hugo Award-winning 1962 alternate history novel, Season 2 of the one-hour drama series The Man in the High Castle continues to explore what would have happened if the Allied Powers had lost World War II. While Germany controls much of the East Coast and Japan controls the West Coast, the Rocky Mountains have become a “neutral zone”—and ground zero for a resistance, led by a mysterious figure known only as “the Man in the High Castle.” While some citizens struggle against the fear, oppression and inequality, others accept their lives, as compromised and unfulfilling as they might be. But after a series of enigmatic films surface depicting a world vastly different from their own, some begin to question the very nature of their reality.
The Man in the High Castle season 3 premieres October 5.
